San Diego producer Misk sent over his latest release, The Twacked EP, a few days ago and I wanted to share my favourite track from it. Equal parts ethereal and bass-driven, Smitten shines with its weaving of so many different styles. - 110 BPM


“The Twacked EP, an amazing take on the whole tripped-out-future-trap-beat movement...From utilizing all the right 808 samples, gun clap transitions (told ya I love gun claps), and dubstep/future-bass inspired wobbles and drops, Misk has all the makings of a fine a trill sir. For connoisseurs of harder-styles of music, Misk is someone you'll want to keep posted on. “ - Sweetest Drip


If you’re not familiar with this post series, every week throughout the week I gather all the newly announced or freshly discovered gems in the undefinable world of forward-leaning bass music and post them 15-25 at at time here (because when I did 50+ embeds it was killing puppies and making children cry). There are no genre restrictions as most of these song escape any real classification due to the infinitude of stylistic origins. That and a hyperactive internet-based culture breeds rapid mutualized self-gratification and kids comes up with their own genre name as often as they write a good song. They’re worthy of a solid beard stroke and most would slay a dance floor if played on a proper system. - Jaime le dubstep


As I’m sure you’re all well aware, it’s Tuesday again, and time for us to post up some traps you won’t want to miss. As if this week was any different than the last, the trapdown wave is still spreading across the EDM scene and artists are still coming out of the blue to present their potential in the game. It seems like new tracks are being put up everyday now, and it is getting harder and harder to see where all this talent is coming from. Today we get to bring you 2 bumpin ass mixes from Mischief and 9FEETOFSMOKE respectively. Here’s our best attempt in accumulating some of the sick trap and sexy swag being shared across the intraweb this last week, and we hope y’all enjoy it! - The Dankles


We usually like to post tracks with download link here but I love this track so much that I just had to throw it up anyway. This track is a funky fresh take on trap with a healthy dose of futuristic cyborg sex sounds. Try it, you’ll like it. - Damn Son Where'd You Find this


Yep. Is master Misk doing Aladdin in Trap sounds?….sounds like. Sticky nu tune, sticky nu way of trap. No gunshots here, just arabic taste. Maybe best trap tune to date. - Egyptian Maraccas

Bio

Having spent his formative years between Kuwait, New Orleans, and the Bay Area, Misk settled down in San Diego to study electro-acoustic music composition at San Diego State University and launch his career producing and performing electronic music.

In 2010 Misk co-founded bass imprint Elk Beats with San Diego / Albaquerque based Dubstep producer EshOne and released his first EP, Nintendont, on Vermin Street which hit #1 on Addictech’s top 10 weekly chart and finished in March 2010’s top 10 for the month. His 2012 follow up EP on Vermin Street, First World Problems, charted among Beatport’s top 50 glitch hop albums.

Misk’s sound, which draws on a range of influences far beyond the diversity of his upbringing, offers a unique blend of dubstep, juke, trap, and all manner of sounds spanning the future bass universe.

The tracks that result are funky, fresh, replete with sex appeal— and just a hint of swagga. With support from a range of radio and club DJ’s such as MistaJam (BBC Radio 1Xtra), Modestep, HULK, Distal, Salva, and Starkey, it’s unlikely that Misk will remain one of southern California’s best kept secrets for much longer.
